Amaz­ing Dubai

A new mu­si­cal takes up year­long res­i­dency at Mad­i­nat The­atre

What's On (Dubai) - - CULTURE -

Dubai may have its beau­ti­ful beaches and enor­mous shop­ping malls, but it’s so much more – that’s the ethos be­hind new mu­si­cal Amaz­ing Dubai. The lo­cal pro­duc­tion chron­i­cles the story of Dubai’s jour­ney, told through the eyes of an imag­i­nary Emi­rati fam­ily who travel to Dubai’s small fish­ing vil­lage in the 1800s. As the fam­ily grows, so does the city, and the show doc­u­ments the demise of the pearl fish­ing in­dus­try, the ac­cu­mu­la­tion of oil and gold, the im­por­tance of tourism and tax-free trade – all told through song and dance. The show will be per­formed twice a day, from Sun­day to Thurs­day, all year.

The­atre, Souk Mad­i­nat, Dubai, Sat to Thur 11am and 2pm, Dhs75. Tel: (04) 3666546. Taxi: Mad­i­nat. mad­i­natjumeirah.etix­
